Hi, I've tried the 5' RACE kit and have not had success with it.  After
repeated calls to the company and several resupplies of the test kit
components I've found a problem with their anchor or the primer against
their anchor.  In short, I could amplify a product from my gene of
interest from their cDNA supplied with my known primers but not with
their anchor.  Have you heard from any others using this kit?

Please respond to me since I don't normally read this newsgroup but saw
this over a friends shoulder and thought I would respond.
